Wedding Gift Brings Joy to Orphans

We are so happy to share the story of a young couple from Washington DC who have been members of the NCC Mission Team to Congo for Christ for the past three years. You will learn how they even found a way to bless the orphans in Congo as a part of their wedding. Nik shares their story:

Mandy and I have been honored and blessed to travel to the DRC the past three summers with a group from National Community Church in Washington DC. Pastor Jeremiah, the staff of CCC and the kids have become such a huge part of our lives—they are our family. So when we began planning our wedding we knew that our Congolese family would be there in spirit even if it wasn’t possible to have them there in person. We hung pictures all around the venue from our past trips and even played recordings of the CCC children’s choir during the reception. As many know, it is an American wedding tradition for the bride and groom to provide small gifts—favors—for their wedding guests to take home. With a creative and unique twist on this tradition, Mandy suggested that in lieu of favors, we make a donation in honor of each of our wedding guests to our friends at Congo for Christ Center.
